Let me ask you a basic question.
Where does the Government get money?
A. It produces it by itself
B. It grows on trees
C. The “rich”
The Correct Answer: D.
GOVERNMENT HAS NO MONEY UNLESS THEY TAKE IT FROM YOU!
But if 41% of Americans are on the Government dole to some degree, and 50% of them pay no federal income taxes at all who are left to pay those bills and thus raising their taxes by hook or by crook is all you have left.
And if they feel they are “entitled” to it and feel no responsibility, or guilt for demanding more and more of it?
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.–Ronald Reagan
One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. . . .–Ronald Reagan 1961.
Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves. as cited in The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World (2007), Alan Greenspan, Penguin Press, Chapter 4 (Private Citizen), p. 87
You and I are told increasingly that we have to choose between a left or right, but I would like to suggest that there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down — up to a man’s age-old dream; the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order — or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism, and regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course.–Ronald Reagan
Feb. 5, 1976, Prime Minister Thatcher said, “…and Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They [socialists] always run out of other people’s money. It’s quite a characteristic of them.”
Thomas Sowell: Even squirrels know enough to store nuts, so that they will have something to eat when food gets scarce. But the welfare state has spawned a whole class of people who spend everything they get when times are good, and look to others to provide for their food and other basic needs when times turn bad.
The 14th Amendment to the Constitution prescribes “equal protection of the laws” to all Americans. But what does that mean, if the President of the United States can arbitrarily grant waivers, so that A, B and C have to obey the laws but X, Y and Z do not — as with both ObamaCare and the immigration laws?
Two reports came out in the same week. One was from the Pentagon, saying that, in just a few years, Iran will be able to produce not only a nuclear bomb but a missile capable of carrying it to the United States. The other report said that the American Olympic team has uniforms made in China. This latter report received far more attention, both in Congress and in the media.
People who lament gridlock in Washington, and express the pious hope that Democrats and Republicans would put aside their partisan conflicts, and cooperate to help the economy recover, implicitly assume that what the economy needs is more meddling by politicians, which is what brought on economic disaster in the first place. (Skeptics can read “The Housing Boom and Bust.”)
Racism is not dead, but it is on life support — kept alive by politicians, race hustlers and people who get a sense of superiority by denouncing others as “racists.”
One of the arguments for Medicare is that the elderly don’t want to be a burden to their children. Apparently it is all right to be a burden to other people’s children, who are paying taxes.
Those who talk as if more people going to college is automatically a Good Thing seldom show much interest in what actually goes on at college — including far less time spent by students studying than in the past, and a proliferation of courses promoting a sense of grievance, entitlement or advanced navel-gazing and breast-beating.
One of the most dangerous trends of our times is making the truth socially unacceptable, or even illegal, with “hate speech” laws. It is supposed to be terrible, for example, to call an illegal alien an “illegal alien” or to call an Islamic terrorist an “Islamic terrorist.” When the media refer to “undocumented” workers or to violence committed by “militants,” who is kidding whom — and why?
After the charismatic — and disastrous — Woodrow Wilson presidency, the voters did not elect another president in the next decade who could be considered the least bit charismatic. Let us hope that history repeats itself.
For more than two centuries, the U.S. military never had a public celebration of anybody’s sex life — until the recent “gay pride” event under the Obama administration. Here, as elsewhere, the gay political agenda is not equality but privilege.
Franklin D. Roosevelt famously said, “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” Then he proceeded to generate fear among businesses for years on end, with both his anti-business rhetoric and his anti-business policies. Barack Obama is repeating the same approach and getting the same results — namely, an agonizingly slow economic recovery, as investors hang on to their money, instead of risking it in a hostile political environment.
If we wake up some morning and find some American cities in radioactive ruins, courtesy of a nuclear Iran, nobody is going to care whether the president who lets this happen is the first black president or the last WASP president. But, in the meantime, many people will keep on voting for symbolism, as if an election is a popularity contest, like choosing a college’s Homecoming Queen or Parade Marshal.
There seems to be something “liberating” about ignorance — especially when you don’t even know enough to realize how little you know. Thus an administration loaded with people who have never run any business is gung-ho to tell businesses what to do, as well as gung-ho to tell the medical profession what to do, lenders whom to lend to, and the military how to fight wars.
And that “the rich” are cheap, greedy bastards when you are the cheap greedy bastard who thinks you are “entitled” to someone else money.
But you don’t want to hear that now do you. That’s a very nasty truth. A sweet lie is much more palatable.
So What is Greed?
And one of the questions raised in the documentary,” Name me one society that is not based on greed?”
That’s a more profound question than it looks because if you’re truly honest with yourself and with others you already know the real answer.
It doesn’t exist.
So using “greed” as a political weapon is dishonest at best.
The liberals and the progressives are greedy. There just greedy with your money.
They are greedy for their own power.
And their class warfare against “the rich” is just using your greed to further theirs.
Greed is a pernicious thing.
We all do it.
I do it.
Getting “something for free” is a form of greed because nothing tangible is ever free.
And then the Democrats go after “the rich” and make you envious of them.
That’s a form of greed. Because you lust after their money. You covet their money. The money they’ve earned and you haven’t.
Mind you, Democrats have plenty of “rich” people backing them and plenty of Unions that are International entities (AFL-CIO , NEA, AFT,and SEIU just to name 4) and could get money from foreign sources.
But they aren’t going to mention it.
And neither will the Ministry of Truth Media.
Why would they. They are playing on your emotions. They are manipulating you. Why point out their duplicity.
Welfare is greedy.
You’re being paid by other people’s labor.
So, name me a society free of greed.
It doesn’t exist.
So when the Democrats trot out class warfare and proclaim piously how they are for the working man and the poor against “the rich” and the”greedy” laugh in their both of their two faces!!
Meanwhile: Surveillance drones have a new mission. According to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) they will be used for “public safety”. Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the DHS, told a House Committee meeting on Homeland Security that the more than 30,000 drones that will be deployed into American skies are just arbitrarily watching out for US citizens.
And anyone who isn’t a devout liberal is a “terrorist” (and a “racist” or bigot) and the Left is preparing for violence at Election time, FROM YOU.
Coincidentally, the Federal Protective Service (FPS) has been given the responsibility to protecting federally owned property while preparing for civilian led riots expected in the near future. (info wars)
Squirreling away, indeed… :)
So are you nuts? :)
